Fresh off their appearance on Saturday Night Live, Massachusetts-based electrop band Passion Pit popped into Washington, D.C, for a three-day sold-out concert series. Noticeable amongst the blazing lights, throbbing bass and harmonic lyrics was the appearance of an Alex and Chloe for HRC Purple Painted Heart T-shirt on bassist Jeff Apruzzese.  

By joining the chorus of musicians and other Americans donning purple in recognition of Spirit Day, Apruzzese, a straight ally, is making a bold statement against bullying and standing up for bullied youth across this country.
